The Real Housewives of OC’s Alexis Bellino did what everyone does after being crucified on the reunion show; she took to her blog to vent her upset. First and foremost, Alexis wants Tamra Barney to apologize for calling her “Jesus Jugs” and it’s an apology that she believes should be paid to the whole Christian community. After getting that out of the way, Alexis tackled the issue of her marriage. The ladies feel that her husband, Jim, treats her like a child and bosses her around. Alexis had this to say regarding her marriage,
“My marriage does not rely on what any of these women have to say.” For her, their marriage is a partnership, and she’s glad Jim can help put her in her place once in a while. “If this is difficult for some to understand, I have really good news for you — you don’t have to understand it because it is what works for me, and if it doesn’t work for anyone else, then that’s OK,”
The biggest change for Alexis this season has been her crumbling friendship with Gretchen Rossi, while a new one blossomed with Vicki Gunvalson.
“The person Gretchen really is has been lost to this new mean-girl version. I want my old friend back. I am not claiming Vicki is my best friend, and I am not claiming that she doesn’t have faults, because we all do. I just know that this woman does not have a mean, malice [sic] heart,”
I think these ladies had raised rather valid points. Alexis IS treated like a child and bossed around by her husband. Also Gretchen wasn’t trying to attack Alexis, but simply point out how others see her. Alexis doesn’t do well with even a moment of criticism and things snowball from there.
